Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki invited the head of the European People’s Party, Manfred Weber, to Poland in response to his controversial statement about the elections in Poland. “If the Germans openly admit that they want to interfere in the elections in Poland, the issue should be raised publicly,” Morawiecki wrote.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki reacted to an interview given on Sunday by the chairman of the European People’s Party, Manfred, to the ZDF station. Weber gave conditions for cooperation with various right-wing parties. “Every party must want to help shape Europe, not overthrow it, and must respect the rule of law. Those who do not respect this – such as the AfD, the Rassemblement National Le Pen in France or the Polish PiS party – are our opponents, with whom we will fight – emphasized the head of the EPP.
Mateusz Morawiecki summoned Manfred Weber to the debate
Mateusz Morawiecki, who recorded the video, reacted to Weber’s words. “I mean, it’s overdone.” As the Prime Minister of the Polish government, which represents the parliamentary majority elected in democratic elections, I will not allow the elections of Poles to be so slandered, said the Prime Minister. The head of the Polish government admitted, inter alia, that “if the Germans openly admit that they will interfere in the elections in Poland, then let them stand with an open visor.”
He expressed the same thought in a letter to Manfred Weber. “I think that such actions are unprecedented in modern history and, taking into account the upcoming elections in Poland, your declaration may be interpreted as a direct attempt to interfere in this process,” wrote the head of the government. He added that Poland does not need lessons in democracy due to the merits of “Solidarity” for Europe, and “Polish Problems” proclaimed in Western Europe simply do not exist.” He invited Weber to discuss migration policy, social and economic issues. He added that the debate could be held on TV or remotely.
– I see that this is a Polish national debate that Mr. Mateusz Morawiecki is trying to raise to a higher instance. I believe that this should be a debate with the participation of the representative of the European People’s Party in Poland, Mr. Donald Tusk. If Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki wants to organize a debate, let him debate with Donald Tusk, EPP spokesman Pedro López de Pablo told Fakt.
